Verbeek announced that Rhys Williams, Shane Lowry, Tommy Oar, James Holland and goalkeeper Eugene Galekovic missed out on the final squad, though Galekovic will continue to train with the squad as a back-up to the other three 'keepers in case of injury in the lead-up to the tournament.
The Dutch coach added that the 21-year-old Williams would have been a certain member of his squad had it not been for a pelvic injury. The young defender played through the pain barrier throughout the season, but isn't fit enough to play at the World Cup.
Australia will have to deal with Germany, Ghana and Serbia if they are to survive the group stage of the 2010 World Cup. They start the tournament with a match against Germany on June 13.
